Spring School on Circular Economy
8 - 11 April 2019
The Spring School on Circular Economy is organised in collaboration with the EIT RawMaterials funded Raw Materials Scenario (RaMaScene) project. The lead organiser is Leiden University’s Institute of Environmental Sciences (CML), and the school is supported by KU Leuven and the University of Bordeaux. The programme in short consists of:
A total programme of 4 days, plus one day of arrival and welcome reception.
- Two days of introduction to tools like Life cycle assessment, Material flow analysis, and Input Output analysis, and exercises with the RaMaScene tool, that helps students to build circularity scenarios and make rough calculations on economic and environmental benefits. This part is given not only to the cohort of 15 PhD students, but also to about 10 professionals that join this part of the course
- One day of classes into circular economy policy making
- One day that combines career counselling, a review of grant options for young researchers, exchanges on their own PhD, and support in writing an outline postdoc proposal.
Attendance is free and a selection process will take place.
